Cornflake Chicken Recipe


  1. Taking your chicken pieces, cut them into 4-5 strips per breast.
  2. In a separate medium bowl, whisk your eggs together 
  3. In your second bowl, pour in your flour. 
  4. To your flour mixture add your choices of seasoning, for this recipe we kept it classic with some chicken seasoning mixes. However, depending on your desired spice or outcome, you can add a variety of seasonings such as onion powder,  chilli flakes, paprika, seasoned salt, garlic powder or chilli powder. Mix together until combined.
  5. In your final bowl (this should be your biggest bowl) pour out your cornflake mixture and begin crushing with a wooden spoon or rolling pin until you have smaller cornflake crumbs. 
  6. Now it's time for it all to come together, grab your pieces of chicken and lightly toss in the seasoned flour, next repeating the same by lightly coating in the egg mixture and finally coating in the cornflakes mixture. Place each cornflake-crusted chicken piece to the side until you have completed the process. 
  7. Taking your baking tray, spray 1-3 sprays of the 1 Calorie Sunflower Oil Spray and begin placing your chicken.
  8. Cook for 30 minutes in the oven on gas mark 5 / 180, until they are golden brown
  9. Assemble your sauces and enjoy!
